Detect Adobe Plugin In all Browsers

Hello,

I am trying to find code that will detect if a browser as the Adobe or
any PDF plugin. I am writing a subscription only site that needs
access to view "pages" in a book that could have as many as 3000 pages
in it. To do this I am using 2 frames one that contains controls to be
able to navigate between pages and the other to display the "streamed"
pdf file.

Does anybody know a script that will do this for all browsers?
Thanks

David

A Google search of <url:

found a number of things.

The first couple seem particularly promising. I'm not endorsing the
scripts you find, nor is it likely you'll find a script that does it for
"all browsers" since a number of browsers don't support plug-ins at all,
and some that do don't support JavaScript, or JavaScript could be
disabled, resulting in your inability to dynamically detect anything.
